This is a gorgeous large koru carved from Marsden flower greenstone. The deep dark green contrasts wonderfully against the pale green in the bottom half creating a very striking piece. The simple single spiral shape compliments the size of this special pendant.
The koru represents new life and growth, as a fern frond opening up.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast and is an especially distinctive type of greenstone because of its beautiful gold and white variegation, known as "flower"
